Getting out of bed is a drag, but having a roly-poly droid waiting for you sure makes mornings a lot easier. Think Geek has answered our breakfast prayers by creating a BB-8 waffle maker. Eat one of these and you’ll immediately know how to find Luke Skywalker, I’m sure of it.
Following in the footsteps of previous Star Wars wafflers modeled after the Death Star and Darth Vader, this little machine gives your morning routine a piping hot thumbs up. The waffles are not very big, only five inches by six-and-¾ inches, but you can make up for that in flavor. Oh, and by eating a ton of them. This is officially-licensed Star Wars: The Force Awakens merch so you won’t find any Tosche Station knock-offs here.
The cast aluminum cooking plates give beautiful detail to every waffle, and the high sides make for giant circular pools to fill up with the best syrup in the galaxy. Think Geek put together a video showing off this latest in droid technology, and it’s fun to see all the BB-8s sitting around the breakfast table eating… BB-8s? Wait a minute, is this some sort of droid cannibalism? I can’t watch.
As for us humans, a few of these toasty BB units, side of sizzling banta bacon and some blue milk and you’ve got yourself a well balanced meal to start the day.
